If you’re planning to decorate your ensuite bathroom, there are many elements of design and style that you need to consider.
As bathroom experts, we have experience working with every size and style of bathroom, so let us help you to be space-efficient with the following tips on small bathroom design.
Designing or renovating a small room can be difficult and it’s important to avoid cluttering the space.
Space-saving ideas, such as hanging towels on bars or hooks and mounting taps to the wall, can accentuate the area and make the room feel open and spacious.
Here at Roccia, we stock various luxury bathroom brands, including Laufen who are characterised by their design, innovation and expert attention to detail. Their wall-mounted basins and taps can transform smaller spaces as they are more compact.
Go Large with Floor and Wall Tiles
By opting for larger tiles in a smaller space, you can make the room appear bigger. This is not a science, but as there are fewer and thinner grout lines, naturally, the space will look larger.
By blending the colour of your tiles with the wall, you can also create the illusion of a more open space. Though, if your style is more suited to making a statement, then our stunning range of Milano Victorian tiles can add a unique dimension to your room.
Big tiles for small bathrooms is just a guide and it works for most people but you can also choose to use large tiles on the floor and smaller tiles for the sink splashback to incorporate different textures and features within your space.
Shapes and Colours
When choosing fittings or features for your small bathroom, we’d advise choosing oval or rounded mirrors, baths and basins. By cutting corners from bulky units or built-in bathtubs, you will create the illusion of more space.
We would recommend bright natural colours for your ensuite bathroom, such as light blues, creamy whites or light greens. These colours will open up the room by keeping things neutral but also adding a bit of personality. You can use patterned towels and quirky wall accessories or posters to create striking and eye-catching detail.
By choosing light shades for your tiles, walls and furnishings, you can make the room look more spacious.

Lighting and Decor
As with every bathroom, we’d always recommend letting in as much natural light as possible. This can include incorporating glass for shower screens and adding mirrors.
Light fittings are also crucial to brightening up your small bathroom, and we’d suggest a white hue bulb as opposed to a yellow glow. White bulbs generally have a more energetic feel as they mimic the colour of natural light.
By introducing plants into your bathroom, you can add character, and a natural feel to compliment the natural tones of the tiles and wall colour. False plans can also be a great addition to small bathrooms as they require no maintenance and can be stored up high on shelves or on top of units.
